Marlborough – The Marlborough Savings Charitable Foundation has awarded the Horace Mann Education Associates, Inc. (HMEA) a $4,870 grant to improve the quality of life for residents of a group home for autistic adults in Northborough.
“Helping individuals live full and respected lives right in our own community is a great way for us to give back,” said Ellen Dorian, secretary of the Marlborough Savings Charitable Foundation.
For over 50 years, the mission of HMEA has been to affirm and promote the values, dreams and potential of people with developmental disabilities through education, support and life experiences. The organization's focus is on developing programs and directly providing services to over 3,800 children and adults with autism and other special needs throughout central and southeastern Massachusetts.
